As one commentator noted, mind numbingly boring may be the best way to describe the New York Jets victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Wild Card playoff game last weekend. The Jets outscored the Bengals by 10 points with a 24 – 14 victory. The Bengals continued their slide from the end of the regular season having lost 3 of their last 4 games after they clinched playoff position. The Jets were 2.5 point underdogs heading into the game. Despite their poor regular season finish, over 60% of the betting action at LinesMaker was on the Bengals to cover.
The Jets now head into the next round of the playoffs next weekend as they try and win the Divisional Title. They are the fifth seed and will be traveling to San Diego to take on the Chargers. The Jets are arguably playing their best football of the season at just the right time, but will have a lot of work to do to get past the Chargers and cinch the title. LinesMaker Sportsbook has betting odds of 7 to 1 for the Jets to win the AFC and 14 to 1 to win Super Bowl next month.
